A selection of Scottish recipes dating back hundreds of years are being brought back to life as part of an edible archive project.Scottish recipes dating back hundreds of years are to be brought back to life as part of the 2011 Archive Awareness Campaign. During the year, the Scottish Council on Archives has been collecting old Scottish recipes, some of which were used at the first edible archive event at Captain Taylor's Coffee House in Edinburgh in November.
Now, a selection of the recipes are being collated into an electronic cookbook which will 100 foods including ancestral recipes such as Potato Kugel, a traditional Russian Jewish dish, similar to Swiss potato Rosti and the Royal Bank of Scotland’s 1960s strawberry cheesecake.
Members of the public are still welcome to submit their own recipes or food related stories at the Edible Archive website.
